leek confit and lazy boh.

What does a rooster with allergies and a sinus headache do after teaching on Thursday? Make leek confit, of course. (And do laundry. And make more chile verde base. And vacuum. And scrub the dish drying rack. I have a problem with sitting still.) This recipe for leek confit also comes from Local Kitchen — so simple, so tasty. We followed Kaela’s advice and spooned this over a bowl of noodles with salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, and a little bit of goat cheese. Super easy, and so good.

I realized yesterday that I haven’t been posting as many pictures of Boh lately. Don’t worry, he’s still working just as hard as ever.

Yesterday I snapped a quick picture of my freezer. Not too much room left  — which is a good thing. Seems I am way better at playing in the kitchen than I am at reading books these days.

And here’s a shot of my idlewood — almost time to divide for the sleeves. I managed to knit a few rows while watching the first episode of Bones (Season 6) this morning, which was a lovely way to start the day. And right now, there are peaches simmering in bourbon and sugar on the stove. (Not a bad way to spend the afternoon…)

Happy first weekend of fall!

  1. There’s our intrepid guy!!!
    Can’t wait to try the leek confit. The cherry tomato one was so easy and so delicious!

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Awww Boh, workin’ hard, I see. :)

    Your Idlewood is coming along nicely… It’s a lovely pattern, and should be ready in time for plenty of late fall/winter wear. I know you must have posted this somewhere in your blog, perhaps more than once, but what are you teaching?

    I went to Sarah Lawrence College on Thursday for a lecture by Temple Grandin on Autism… it was fantastic. Being back on a college campus made me yearn for my college days!

  3. I was just wondering how youre Idlewood is coming along. Once you split, the knitting just flies … this morning is lovely and cool, so I’m hoping that fall just might be coming and a cowl will soon be appropriate.
    Tummy scratches for Boh! And hope you’re feeling better!
